The team at Specsavers in Dartford are gearing up to pump some iron in support of their colleagues taking part in the KM Charity Walk.

A target of 2,000

From 22 to 27 June, Specsavers, located on 54 High Street, will see staff test their strength by lifting weights in store each day and trying to hit a target of 2,000 reps overall by the end of the week.

They will also be cycling as far as they can on an exercise bike and donning their best and brightest sports gear to encourage sponsorship donations from the community.

Eight team members will be taking part in the five-mile KM Charity Walk on Sunday 28 June to raise money for Demelza Hospice Care for Children and the children’s road safety department at the KM Charity Team.

Pushing themselves to the physical limit for charity

Specsavers Dartford store director, Kam Singh, says: ‘This is a great way for everyone at the store to get involved in raising money for the KM Charity Walk.

‘The staff will be pushing themselves to the physical limit the week leading up to the Walk in support of their colleagues, who’ll be joining hundreds across Kent to raise awareness of two wonderful causes. We’re encouraging everyone in the community to come and sponsor our staff, to help them make a difference to the lives of children in Kent.’

Chosen charities

The Kent and Medway Charity Team supports and promotes green travel initiatives across schools and PTA groups, offering services such as Walk to School, Buster’s Book Club and KM Kent Cooks. Demelza Hospice Care for Children helps children and young people in Kent with terminal illnesses, and offers support to their families. The hospice offers one-to-one day care and residential breaks, and is based in Keycol.
